Exhibition Opening - Geometric Abstraction - February 10 to April 6, 2010

Still Point Art Gallery announces the opening of Geometric Abstraction! This show is the largest we have had in our short history, and the work in this show represents a tremendous variety of media - painting, photography, digital art, mixed media, metal, glass, acrylic, fabric, clay, wood, and ceramic!

Artists responded with tremendous enthusiasm to the following request for art submissions:

Geometry - squares, triangles, circles, ellipses, cones, cubes, and polygons ... length, area, and volume. Geometry frames our world and shapes our world. It brings order, organization, balance, symmetry, and asymmetry to our surroundings. Geometry is used by carpenters and astronomers as well as theoretical mathematicians. The concept of geometry is so simple and appealing that even young children seem to intuitively draw squares and circles and rectangles. Yet the concept of geometry is so complex that mathematicians and physicists may spend years studying applications and theories of one tiny aspect of geometry. Then there is the artist. When an artist's unique view .. of the world, of the self ... incorporates geometric shapes or focuses on natural or man-made geometric shapes, the result may be an amazing display of shape and color. Geometric abstraction can be daring, imposing, powerful, stark, complex, bold, or rhythmic.
